How to treat and prevent signs of aging on the neck

The NECK is a major area of concern we deal with here at Accent Aesthetics . Almost all of our clients who come to see us for anti-aging on the face mention the rapid onset of aging they see on their neck.

This is CAUSED by many things.

Constant Sun Exposure: The sun breaks down the skin’s collagen and elastin and inhibits it’s ability to produce them, so it’s the WORST factor for aging. In Colorado, we absorb much more UV Rays than at sea level so we see dramatic aging here. Most people do not understand the need for daily spf use and daily sun prevention. It is of utmost importance here and something we educate every client on before starting any treatments.

Tech Neck: This is a huge factor in the last decade. The constant looking down at our devices causes the skin to crease leaving lasting lines and wrinkles deep in the skin.

Forgotten skincare regimen: The neck is often forgotten morning and night when putting on anti-aging skincare products. We always tell out clients “whatever you do to your face, do to your neck and chest.”  This will keep all of the skin that is constantly exposed to sun and elements, looking and feeling young and healthy!

Thinner Skin: The dermal layer on the neck is thinner than that of the rest of the body, often compared to the thinness of the eyelids. It also contains less active sebacious glands. These factors make it a prime target for dryness, crepey texture, sagging and wrinkling. This is why we recommend a specific anti-aging neck product such as Revision Nectifirm. It contains ingredients specific to treating and preventing these issues.

Chemical peels: These are excellent for exfoliating, brightening and over time, smoothing and plumping up the skin. Often in-office chemical peels are quick and painless with minimal downtime such as peeling and flaking. Chemical peels are placed on the outer layer of the skin, so they take time and consistency to achieve results.  Most clients should expect 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Microneedling: One of the best treatments for texture issues such as crepey-ness, lines and wrinkles and scarring! Very little downtime and thanks to numbing cream, very little discomfort. Tiny micro-channels or wounds, are stamped into the dermis stimulating the bodies wound healing process. New cells, collagen and elastin are produced to heal these wounds resulting in firmer, smoother, healthier skin. These treatments are also sold in packages and require commitment and consistency to achieve results.

Radio Frequency Microneedling: Radio Frequency creates bulk heating deep in the dermis creating collagen and elastin. Add that to the benefits of microneedling and you’ve got a stellar treatment for all skin issues, especially the delicate neck area!
